Information: 1.1 pound / 500 grams packed in vacuum sealed foil bag. Grapefruit (Latin: Citrus paradisi), one of the world’s most popular breakfast fruits can now be found in almost every supermarket from New York City to New Zealand. And, as an important source of vitamin C, eating grapefruits is actually encouraged by virtually every nutritionist in the world – which is strange considering the fruit began its life with the moniker, “The Forbidden Fruit”. In fact, the name grapefruit was not coined until 1814. From then it would not be until 1870 that the first grapefruit nursery was cultivated. Now, the state of Florida, the world’s grapefruit leader produces almost 2,000,000 metric tons of the fruit annually – not a very forbidden fruit these days! The fruit has a bittersweet citrus character which blends amazingly with our high grown Ceylon tea. Brew it hot, or cold over ice, add some sugar and watch the flavor open right up.

Hot tea brewing method: Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 teaspoon of tea for each cup into the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea). Even though milk and a dash of sugar help enhance the flavor character on this tea, it is perfectly acceptable to consume this tea ‘straight-up’

Iced tea brewing method: (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water]. Please note that this tea may tend to go cloudy or ‘milky’ when poured over ice; a perfectly normal characteristic of some high quality black teas and nothing to worry about!
